‘Badhaai Ho’ actress Neena Gupta to star in a social-thriller ‘Gwalior’
Yesteryear actress Neena Gupta, who was last seen in ‘Badhaai Ho’, will now be seen on a thriller.
Neena Gupta is all set to act along with Sanjay Mishra on screen.
‘Gwalior’ is an upcoming film with Neena Gupta and Sanjay Mishra in the lead roles. The shoot is taking place in Gwalior itself and they are expected to wrap up by the end of next month.
Neena told the Mirror that, ”It is an interesting concept. I play Manju Mishra, a housewife, and the story narrates how an uneducated woman who is perceived as weak handles a situation involving cash crunch.” She also adds that Sanjay Mishra plays the role of a retired teacher namely Sambhu Nath Mishra.
When Sanjay Mishra was asked by The Mirror about working with Neena, he said, ”I am grateful for the chance to work with her on this film. She is my senior from National School of Drama, and since I have the utmost respect for her in real life, it wasn’t difficult to forge the husband-wife bond on screen.” He also adds that his character has been inspired by his father.
The film is written and directed by Jaspal Singh Sandhu and Rajeev Barnwal. Jaspal says to The Mirror, ”It’s a thriller with an element of drama and revolves around an old, married couple, and how their lives take an unexpected turn.” He adds, “We are shooting inside a 150-year-old house. After Gwalior, we will move to Varanasi for a threeday shoot.”
